I was wondering what ever gender the sprite in SoM is.
In the english version the sprite is male but in the german version the sprite is female. What's the sprite's gender in the japanese version???
Why do u think nintendo changed the gender???

Wait, what? LOL The first time I saw Sprite's sprite (heh heh heh), I thought it was a girl. But, upon further playthrough, I now release that it is indeed a male. :3

Well, it's my opinion what Sprite's gender is. Although, that is a good point you make though, though.

Well in the English version when the Sprite meets Gnome he comments that the girl is Sprite's wife (she objects of course).

who's gnome???

I can only recall the german version and it always calls the sprite on screen "Koboldin" or Kobold Mädchen" which mean female kobold or kobold girl.
Also when u get imprisoned on the airship the sprite gets sent into the kitchen. I can't remember the actual dialog but I think they ment the sprite belongs in the kitchen because she is female.

Gnome is one of the eight Mana spirits. He's the second one you encounter in the game. He has the power of Earth.

I think its ambigious so that the player can decide for themselves.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

I'm pretty sure sprite is referred to as a male during in the game, although I did think he was a she for a good majority of the game.

Edit, just checked Wiki and it says this "The sprite's gender has never officially been stated; however, in the Japanese version's script, he uses the first-person pronoun "oira" (おいら?) that is mostly used by male speakers"

This is good

Hi, sorry to hijack the thread, but can the in-game text be changed in SOM? I've bought it online and I've just found out before I receive the cart that the text is in german! Meine Deutsche ist nicht so gut..

I'd buy that for a dollar!

Good question. I know the NTSC version can't be changed, so if you're in PAL country it's possible since I don't know much about language options over there anyway. :p
